Hello everyone... We've been talking a lot with you about improving the buyer experience on eBay, and I'm pleased to let you know about some great new enhancements that we're adding to the site over the next two weeks. We've been working hard to ensure that these enhancements will add to the thrill you feel when you win a great item at a fantastic price. Winning on eBay is a big part of the great experience you have on eBay and we want you to win faster, more often and have even more fun than ever before.

If you've been keeping on eye on Sneak Peek (, you're probably aware of many of the products and enhancements we're working on. I'd like to give you a quick snapshot on a number of enhancements that are on their way.

Our new eBay home page A homepage is like a front door, and it can say a lot about the business inside. Making its debut this week, our new eBay homepage has a simplified interface that puts the focus on you and what you love. Quick access to key My eBay information, featured items and recent activities helps to make a more inspired and fun shopping experience. We hope you like our new "front door" and that you find it welcoming, informative and fun.

Bid History redesign Through research and talking to a lot of you, we know that our competitive bidders spend a lot of time on the bid history page. We've enhanced the page to be more functional for you. You'll now be able to bid directly from the Bid History page. We heard that it's really important for you to be able to see more information on all items you're bidding on, so we've restored some transparency when bidding on items over $200.

New look & feel in Search We're making a number of visual changes to our current Search to make the search results pages less-cluttered. Soon you'll notice subtle changes to color and other details that will help the most important content on the page your items stand out better.

Snapshot View on Search Results Snapshot View allows you to browse quickly through larger item images it's a little like window shopping but with faster results. Browse for what you are looking for, or refine your search by color or price, and let your visual sense be your guide. You'll find the link to Snapshot View at the top right of every search results page. This is an exciting new way to help you to find and win items on eBay.

You'll be hearing more about these projects and others like progress with our new My eBay beta, our Finding tests, and more in the coming weeks. Until then, keep checking our General Announcements board, and visiting our Sneak Peek page for updates. We also hope you'll use our email address to let us know what you think about our new projects. We really want to hear from you so don't be shy.
